You read a specific blog every day, waiting to devour the next motivational post on how to achieve success.

After reading you feel ecstatic thinking, “Hey I can do exactly as this post proposes myself!”And the next day you come back to the same blog chasing that emotional high of confirmation.

This happens with a lot of people who become fans of motivational blogs, how to blogs and wildly successful people who chart their experience and progress through their own personal blogs. Most of the readers become stuck in the awe of others success and never journey out on their own to create their own experiences with success. They become a motivational junky but never become a process junky who takes the actions required to be successful.

  • Are you addicted to the success of others but are afraid to create success of your own?
  • Are you mentally motivated by success but unsure of how to implement the effective actions which will produce your desired success?
  • Are you a “champion” of success but secretly miserable because you have not found it?


If your answer is yes to these questions, it’s time for you to become addicted to your own success. You must now stop the constant thinking and talking about success and began to immediately start applying massive action towards success. We are going to get you out of the constant thinking mode and instead get you to start implementing strategy and executing upon that strategy with effective actions.

Here are the 4 ways to become addicted to your own success:


1. Define your desired success in detail

All the time you hear; define your goals or define your desired lifestyle. While these instructions are keys towards getting your mind thinking about what success means to you, they just don’t go deep enough. I really want you to dig deep when defining your desired level of success, which is designed specifically for you.

This is done because we don’t want to produce a general overview. Doing so doesn’t really focus your mindset nor does it give you specific actions to take. What we want to create is a complete layout of your lifestyle, investment portfolio goals, business growth, giving back initiatives; very intricate details.

This very specific layout enables you to see the endgame in the beginning; providing you with direction as to how you will operate effectively to achieve the success you desire.

“Desire is the key to motivation, but it’s determination and commitment to an unrelenting pursuit of your goal – a commitment to excellence – that will enable you to attain the success you seek.” – Mario Andretti

2. Work within the strategy as you develop it

The fatal mistake many people commit; is designing a plan of action but never taking the action that had been planned. Following through and execution are very important when in the pursuit of success. Without implementing these two actions, you have very vivid dreams which remain dormant.

The key here is to perform the tasks you have listed out immediately. Don’t wait for perfect timing. That is procrastination, which is a form of an excuse to not do anything. If the strategy is written down today, perform the supporting tasks tomorrow so that you can immediately begin the process of taking action.

This helps reinforce the notion that time is valuable. So therefore your every thought towards success should be met with a resulting action. You will realize that every moment wasted on non-essential things, distracts you from the process of acquiring success.


3. Make your desired success an obsession

It’s one thing to dream of success and it is another thing to live within success. “But I don’t have success right now,” you say. “How can I live within something I don’t have,” is your question.

A reminder of your desired success must be everywhere for you to see so that it literally drives you insane until it is a reality you live within.

  • Keep the vision in your daily goals journal
  • Have the vision taped next to your mirror in the bathroom so you see it when you wake up in the morning
  • Hang the vision up in your office so that it holds you accountable if you begin to slack off
  • Set the vision as a reminder in your phone that goes off beginning of day, middle of day and end of day
  • Hang around and communicate with people who have achieved the success you desire


Make it an obsession that surrounds your every waken moment of the day!


4. Constantly challenge yourself to achieve more

Complacency can ruin your ability to think successfully very quickly. You cannot think successfully when you believe you have nothing more to accomplish or prove. Being content means you have lost the hunger for a challenge and truly lost the hunger for success.

What you have done in the past is currently being sought out to be outdone by someone else who is obsessed with acquiring the success you have. Life is a journey, therefore it doesn’t conclude until your last breath is taken. You must look at success the same way. Remember to seek success in other forms beyond business success.

Success is about achieving a life that is abundant beyond monetary gain. See money as a means to an end. It can bring you the freedom to gain experiences rather than merely exist. There is always more that can be achieved.


I want you to become addicted to your own success. The only thing that separates successful people from average people is the obsession they have for their success. In turn they support this obsession by taking massive, effective actions. Feed your addiction to success!

Thank you for reading my article! I would love to hear your thoughts in the comment section below!

  1. Good point. Nothing will happen if you don’t make a single move. Reading is good but learning from it and really applying it is the best. We cannot just get addicted to idea of becoming successful. We must see to it that we move forward towards our own success.

  2. Way to go Yura, you totally nailed this article.

    The third point about being obsessed with it is my current obsession. I love the way you made your illustration. Obsession simply means to keep thinking about it, and those steps you mentioned are good ways to go about that. Hang it in the mirror, set it as a reminder in your phone, keep it on your office table etc etc.

    The important thing is to do all you can to keep yourself reminded of your goals.

    I really loved this

  3. Great post Yura . I am one of those people who eventually want success but somehow could not back it up by my actions though i still try each and everyday. This post might actually help .

  4. Thanks for the reminder. It is very easy to set goals but most of us forget that setting the goal and not putting in the work doesn’t amounts to anything. Great post.

  5. Thanks for posting this. I instantly became more motivated to pursue my success. I like what you said about constantly challenging yourself. I often get discouraged and want to stop working on my blog after a few hours, but I know pushing myself to keep going is what will help me obtain success faster.

    • Jenn,
      I appreciate your comment.
      Blogging can be a challenge because we want immediate results: more traffic, actual comments on what we write, and just to build a community around our blog. Just stay focused on your vision and remain consistent with effective actions. Set small goals for yourself and increase the size of those goals as each previous goal is met.
      Much success on your journey and feel free to stay in contact if you have any other questions or need a little motivation.

  6. great article !!
    I agree with what you said , sometimes we only merly read and read but don’t take actions in the daily life .

    But how to find the motivation for every day ? Sometimes just cannot find the motivation that is need every day to do our best in what we do !!

    Thanks for the advises,

    • Kleber,

      I appreciate the comment.
      Yes, it can be tough to find motivation each and everyday, even I struggle with it sometimes. But the key is becoming a master over your own mind. Easier said than done but by doing so you begin to dictate to your mind what it sees instead of it dictating to you what it sees. Pretty much psyching your mind out
